The day has finally come for the new National Museum of African American History and Culture to open.
On Sept. 24, the doors to the museum will open to the public. A few of our staff members had the opportunity to visit the museum Thursday on its media day, and trust us, you will not be disappointed.
The museum includes 12 exhibits, starting from before slavery to the present day. Some parts are devastating, some moving and others breathtaking. All of it is a proud representation of our deep-rooted history and our incredibly admirable culture.
It features personal items of some of the most notable African Americans of all time, such as Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King Jr., Oprah Winfrey, Michael Jackson and Gabby Douglas, as well as so much more.
Because of the highly anticipated crowds, tickets must be acquired before entry. They are now available for reservation on the museum's website.
The day we have been preparing ourselves for is finally here. Be sure to take advantage, because you certainly won't regret it.
